News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News

Just watched Old Yeller.

It’s official guys, DiFi is retiring:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Tuesday announced she would not seek reelection in 2024, putting to rest uncertainty over whether she would seek a sixth full term as the oldest sitting senator…

…Feinstein last year filed initial paperwork to run for reelection in 2024 but until Tuesday had not explicitly said whether she would seek another term. Two California Democrats — Reps. Katie Porter, 49, and Adam B. Schiff, 62 — have already launched campaigns to fill Feinstein’s seat. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), 76, has told colleagues that she intends to run for the Senate seat as well.

And that is an embarrassment of riches. When I heard the news my second reaction (after some applause for DiFi’s decision and her long/Long/LONG career) was to be glad I am not living in California. I would never be able to choose a favorite  amongst them.

There isn’t a bad choice. My heart is still with Katie Porter, tho.

UPDATE 1: It couldn’t happen too soon  –

“Oh, no, I’m not announcing anything. I will one day.”

— Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), about an hour after her office released the statement on her decision not to seek re-election.

  1. Looks like she wansered away from her keepers again and found a microphone. 😦

    I am with you on Katie, though…

    I can you imagine the Chief of Staff yelling at the person staffing DiFi’s when she was asked about not running right after her office just put out an announcement that she wouldn’t?
    “Damn it! I told that staffer. “DON’T LET HER ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS!!!”
    The Dem establishment needs to push for her to RETIRE NOW!

      If she retires now, Newsom will nominate a “moderate” to fill in. That “moderate” will probably win the election.

      I like Porter’s chances, even with the blizzard of Schiff bux floating out there. We need a fighter with a whiteboard.

    I’ve read a number of sources where she said that she was retiring. Katie Porter would make a great senator, but I’d support Adam Schiff if he gets the job…

    I have hated myself every time that I voted for this awful person. I am looking forward to better alternatives.
